Chapter 21. Setting Outlook Options > Improving Your Outlook

Improving Your Outlook

Here's a list of hints that can help you decide what options are most important to configure and why.

  • Manipulating Outlook's options settings can help you make the most out of Outlook. If you rarely use the journal, consider removing it from the Navigation Pane through the Outlook Bar Options button on the Other tab of the Options dialog box.

  • To keep your mailbox size at a manageable level, empty the Deleted Items folder on exiting and configure AutoArchive options to archive all messages older than six months.

  • Use the Data Files Configuration dialog box from the Mail Setup tab to create new Personal Folders files to store and organize your items.

  • Click the Tracking Options button on the Email Options tab to set read and delivery receipts for messages you send.

  • When you first open the Options dialog box, you might feel a little overwhelmed. Just take the options one page at a time and experiment to find the particular options settings that make Outlook the best email tool for you.
